Board of Directors

I started working at the ski hill in highschool when it was run by the Rec Dept. Later, with three kids snowboarding, my wife and I Dawn ran the base station every Sunday for 5 years. My experience with heavy machinery, made me a natural fit for maintenance and grooming, and I eventually joined the board. Even though my kids are grown, I enjoy volunteering for everyone else’s children. Seeing the look on the kids' faces reminds me of when my children were young. I hope to be helping keep it going for many many more years.

I began with the Brattleboro Ski Hill as a freshman in high school and a student board member for LMPSS. I have previously served as the Secretary in 2017, and president in 2018/2020. I have been local to the Brattleboro region all of my life and love winter sports. I believe in this program because of the safe winter sports opportunities it provides the youth of our area all winter long.

I started started volunteering to stay warm during her son's ski lessons, but quickly found out how much fun it was to make hot chocolate, and run the lift. Being involved with the ski hill has been my antidote for getting through the winter. There's nothing better than seeing familiar, happy faces in the lift line. 

Hi I'm Amy! I have lived and worked here in Brattleboro for the past 14 years and I am so grateful to call this community my home. Both my boys have grown up here and naturally first learned to ski and snowboard at 'the hill'. Its been a gift to watch them connect with friends and participate in the something fun during winter months. I do not come from a family of skiers but have enjoyed cheering them on (not too loudly) from the bottom of the hill and I can only hope their love of the sport will only deepen. 

I mostly have loader duties because I get to interface with the customer, especially the kids. This is the hill where my kids learned to ski 16 yrs ago, one of my daughters earned 1st place in slalom for winter carnival in the 1st grade.

My name is Jill McColgan and I have been a member of the board since 2021. The Brattleboro Ski Hill is one of my family’s favorite places to be. We can show up on any day and be surrounded by friends! I am the winter sports coordinator for the ski hill.   I work collaboratively with Mount Snow to provide weekly lesson opportunities to children ages 7-14. My role is to organize the roster list and act as a communication liaison between Mount Snow and families in our community. In addition, I work together with local schools to facilitate their winter sports programs using Brattleboro Ski Hill for students to ski and snowboard during school hours.

I serve as a student director at the hill, working as a director of volunteers and director of social media. I have been working at and skiing at the hill for 7 years and love spending time there. I am a senior in high school and live in Brattleboro. I spent many years skiing competitively but now enjoy ski patrolling and creating content at the hill. I love working at the hill because it is a great feeling to meet the members of the community and make skiing more affordable!

My family and I are transplants to the Brattleboro area, having arrived here in 2015 when our daughter was a newborn.  We fell in love with the community and all it has to offer.  We are avid skiers and having the Brattleboro Ski Hill in our backyard is a one-in-a-million opportunity.  Areas like the Ski Hill just don't exist anymore.

I started volunteering infrequently around our second winter here, but really got pulled into the volunteer snowmaking, grooming and maintenance crew last year and am forever grateful to be able to do so.  2023-2024 is my first year on the board and I am drinking from the proverbial firehose in learning all that my board colleagues can teach me.


Peggy Frehsee
Director of Volunteers

I grew up doing outdoor winter skating and sledding, and started downhill skiing in high school. I began to improve so she could keep up with her two sons over the years. Now I do X-C and snowshoeing and a bit of downhill. iI am glad to participate with her fellow dynamic board members to keep the park skiing open for the community and affordable to all.

I am a Social Media Coordinator for the hill and I am a ski (snowboard) patroller in the winters! I am a student at the University of Vermont with a major in psychology and a minor in American Sign Language. I am also currently working on my yoga teaching training! I love what the hill means for the community and I love getting to meet new people and see familiar faces everyday.
